Four Seasons has unveiled the refurbishment of its Doha property, with guestrooms, suites, dining outlets and the lobby all having been redesigned by Pierre-Yves Rochon.
The 237-room hotel is located on Doha’s waterfront, and originally opened in 2005.
Guestrooms and suites have been redesigned in “a soothing spectrum of blues and beiges reflecting the colours of the sky, sea, sand and earth”, and there are new facilities including automated curtains and lighting systems, as well as “temperature management preservation technology within the newly installed windows”.
The lobby now features “a grandiose door reminiscent of grande dame entrances”, and has been redesigned as an open plan space, with bespoke Italian furnishings and a centrepiece hand blown glass chandelier.
An outdoor terrace has been added to the Seasons Tea Lounge, and the lounge itself has been revamped, “exuding the classical touches of a Parisian café”, alongside nods to the Middle East including a marbled floor inspired by Islamic mosaic tilework, oriental sofas, and cashmere patterned fabrics surrounding openwork tea tables.
Arabica café has also been revamped and now features a coffee and dessert bar – the hotel is making enhancements to other public spaces which will be completed later this year.
Commenting on the news Pierre-Yves Rochon said:
“We were inspired by Doha and its relationship with the outdoors. We researched the local culture and the artistic elements that might tie into the story of the Hotel. I wanted to bring a new dimension of modernity to the property and enhance the guest experience with uplifting design elements and spaces.”
